Would my corporation considered as Personal Services Business (Personal Services Corporation)?


I am interested in setting up a small corporation. It will be a tutoring corporation for high school/college students, and I am not planning on hiring anyone (i.e. I will be the only employee of the corporation). To earn money, I will be tutoring local high school students / college students in public (in an empty classroom in a school, etc.) but I will not associate myself with the school board or local government. I will only be a private tutor for students. The students will pay me directly for tutoring, not the school boards or local government.

Will my corporation considered as Personal Services Business? The tax rates without small business deduction looks scary...

Thank you,

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
